The LEAGUE Michigan

The LEAGUE Michigan is a program for service, service-learning, and philanthropy education that builds character and empowers young people. The program combines calendar-based events, curriculum, and ongoing service throughout the school year to prepare youth and educators to make a positive impact in their communities. As a program affiliate of MNA since 2006, The LEAGUE Michigan builds the capacity of the nonprofit sector by educating K-12 students about civic engagement. In its 8-year history in Michigan, The LEAGUE has grown to serve over 900 classrooms in over 200 schools.

  • Learning To Give curriculum - consists of over 1,600 lessons on service, service-learning and philanthropy education aligned to state and national standards for use by K-12 educators.

  • Fisher Trainings – a 3 ½ day immersion experience where teachers learn how to implement service, service-learning, and philanthropy education curriculum in their classroom. Upcoming Fisher Trainings:

  • Fisher Training Part II - this retreat offers Fisher Training alumni a deeper look into service, service-learning and philanthropy education. During this training, participants share lessons learned, gain ideas to enhance current projects, and develop a plan to engage their administrators and fellow teachers.

  • Service and Leadership Camp - a weekend camp designed by a committee of young people from across the state, providing an opportunity to engage in service, service-learning and philanthropy education projects, interactive sessions, develop leadership skills and lay out plans for the upcoming school year.

  • National Service - through a partnership with the Michigan Nonprofit Association Civic Engagement AmeriCorps VISTA Program, the LEAGUE Michigan places AmeriCorps VISTA members throughout the state to support teachers and students in integrating service, service-learning and philanthropy education throughout the year.

  • Projects - LEAGUE Michigan staff is available to support teachers and students in integrating service, service-learning and philanthropy education projects in the classroom.  Projects can be focused on the moments of service or any additional projects that the students develop.
